The center of the United States that stretches from the state of Ohio in the east to the Dakotas, Nebraska, and Kansas to the west is known as the Midwest. The region is further divided into the Great Lakes States (Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Illinois all border one of the Great Lakes) and the Great Plains States (Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Kansas, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Nebraska).

Although much travel in the United States is focused on the cities of the East Coast, West Coast, and the South, the heart of the country contains one of the top destinations in the United States in Chicago; the "Gateway to the West" in St. Louis; the Mall of America, North America's largest shopping mall; automobile and musical history in Detroit; and hundreds of other traditions, foods, and landmarks worth paying a visit.
